I don't think we want that level of control in this kind of simple UI,
because it complexifies it for a very rare case anyway: it's not worth
the trouble.

I didn't mean to claim that it solves this problem.  I only meant it as
a way to add elements to major-mode modes hooks, but seen from the point
of the view of "the element versus all the modes on which it can apply"
(and then remove the things you added this way).

It shouldn't try to recognize elements added via some other way
than Custom.
